Between 1900 and 1905 artist Mary Alexandra Bell and her husband Charles Herbert Eastlake undertook residencies at various artist colonies through France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Lingering Leaves comes from this period. In it, Eastlake has completely repressed daylight by locating the sun behind thick woolly clouds. The flatness of light and his earthy palette invite us to slow down and note the pleasure a few notes of autumnal tones and yellow accents can offer the eye.
